California in Brief / CHULA VISTA

No new trial for Castaneda

May 04, 2008|Tony Perry

San Diego County Dist. Atty. Bonnie Dumanis has decided not to retry Chula Vista Councilman Steve Castaneda on perjury charges of lying to a grand jury about his ties to a local developer.

A jury last month found Castaneda not guilty of six charges but deadlocked on four others. On Friday, Dumanis asked that the remaining charges be dismissed.

Castaneda is seeking reelection.
